I’m sure you’ll remember ‘that sunscreen song’ the late 90′s by Film Director Baz Luhrman*. You know, that one everyone was crazy about to start with but then was so overplayed they decided they’d be quite happy never listening to it again. Well, that’s how I felt anyway!
It’s funny how over time and with fresh eyes, things can take on a new meaning and make you feel very differently.
A client sent this my … (Read More)
Easier said than done right?
I’m sure you agree that worrying is toxic. It sucks the juicy life force out of us- leaving us tight, exhausted and on constant edge.
And no matter how much we know it’s futile in our intelligent little heads, it’s sooooo easy to get caught up in its menacing web.
Yesterday something happened that flung open the gates for a full on worry invasion. I won’t go into the … (Read More)
For a few seconds, I couldn’t put my finger on it.
I just knew something wasn’t connecting.
All the butterflies and excitement I had been feeling about growing into the next stage of my business had suddenly left me in the lurch.
Let me set the scene:
I had just started working with a fab new coach and mentor to help support me drive my vision forward (yes I do … (Read More)
I just LOVE this quote by our man Steve Jobs. He said:
“Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice”
Many of the clients that come to me for coaching have made a habit of censoring their dreams, editing their desires and playing down their potential. One common reason for this is that they’re busy living the life that others expect from them rather than being true to who they … (Read More)
I hope you had an amazing, fun-filled Christmas and are getting ready to celebrate the new year in style. I don’t know about you, but I’ve eaten way too much food than can possibly be good for me- but hey that’s what Christmas is about right!?
We’re at that time of year when many of us start to reflect on the year just gone and think deeply about what we really want from the year … (Read More)
I always love this time of year. Not only because I adore Christmas and everything it stands for (giving/ time together/ love/ celebration) but there’s just something so exciting about having the next year stretching ahead like a fresh canvas…..and you get to choose what you paint and how you paint it.
As I touched on in my last post, to make the ‘most’ of the year and to have ‘your best year … (Read More)
When we want to make something great happen in our business and life-no matter how big or small- it’s easy to assume that this must be done quickly, right now. The tick tock of the clock weighs heavily upon us as we become acutely aware of precious time slipping through our fingers like elusive gold dust.
This idea that to be successful, we must be superwoman and make it happen NOW, TODAY, YESTERDAY is reinforced … (Read More)
Isn’t it funny how something can happen that just instantly changes your whole perspective? Stephen Covey refers to this as a ‘paradigm shift’ in his awesome book, The 7 Habits of Highly Successful People. Such ‘paradigm shifts’ are at the heart of powerful coaching as rarely the situation in itself that needs changing but rather the way we chose to interpret- and thus emotionally engage with- that situation.
Let me share with you … (Read More)
